-not much to say, works perfectly no complaints
-can get REALLY loud sometimes, but isn't a big deal
This product is pretty straight foreward. Uses one SATA data connector and one SATA power connector. It worked with no problems for me. Just lock it into place, put in the cables, and you're good to go.
The message is "There is no disc in the CD or DVD burner". This device uses the standard Windows driver and I could not find an alternative driver. I tried to upgrade the firmware in the device, but the firmware install utility downloaded from ASUS tells me "No matched drive detected! This utility is only for ASUS DRW-24B1ST drive. Detected drive: 0-4-0-0 D: ASUS DRW-24B1ST i 1.00". OK, so I think the "1.00" means firmware 1.00 is installed. I was trying to install Firmware update 1.03, but "go figure" on this error message. Somehow I am supposed to know & understand that a DRW-24B1ST drive is different from a DRW-24B1ST drive.
The ASUS support page also seems to refer to NERO software a lot, but this unit was not shipped with NERO software, and I wouldn't want it anyway. By this time in the evolution of the PC, a no hassle handshake between Windows and a DVD RW device should be taken for granted.
This is the first time I have tried to make multiple copies. Unfortunately, I am beyond the return date for the unit, so I am stuck with it. It will probably go into recycling as soon as I can find something that works fully out of the box.
The problem may well be with Windows 7. I don't care whether it is Windows or ASUS's problem actually. All I know is that it is an issue that the two of them should have resolved by now.
I've burned several videos and data/photo discs (DVD-DL) so far, and had no problems at all. I'm running Windows 7 x64 which is a lot more stable than the new Windows 8 (at the moment).
I don't think you can go wrong with this drive -- nice, basic DVD-RW drive. About the only gripe I have is there's a little too much writing on the front of it, making it look a little tacky in a case that doesn't have a front panel cover.
I can't comment on any other features of the drive - the other 500+ reviews should cover general usage and compatibility well enough. I have a different DVD writer for general use and only use this one for extraction.

Apart from that, the color is right and the data transfer is as it aught to be. Easy to install.
